Effects of liquid-vapor phase distribution on the heat transfer mechanisms during flow boiling in minichannels and microchannels
(Taylor & Francis, 2006-01)
Heat transfer during flow boiling in minichannels and microchannels is intimately linked to the liquid-vapor phase distribution in the channels. The vapor phase exists as nucleating bubbles, dispersed bubbles, elongated ...
Development of a flow boiling map for subcooled and saturated flow boiling of different fluids inside circular tubes
(American Society of Mechanic Engineers, 1991-02)
The thermal behavior of a flow boiling system is represented by a flow boiling map to illustrate visually the relationships among various system parameters. An earlier flow boiling map Collier (1981) does not include the ...
On the nature of critical heat flux in microchannels
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2005-01)
The critical heat flux (CHF) limit is an important consideration in the design of most flow boiling systems. Before the use of microchannels under saturated flow boiling conditions becomes widely accepted in cooling of ...
Nucleation characteristics and stability considerations
(Elsevier Science B.V., 2006)
Flow boiling in microchannels and minichannels has received considerable attention in the past decade. The interest stems from the possibility of achieving the extremely high heat fluxes, over 1 kW/cm2, needed for future ...
An Experimental investigation on flow boiling of ethylene-glycol / water mixtures
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2003-04)
Mixtures of ethylene glycol and water are used in cooling the engines in automotive applications. Heat is transferred essentially under subcooled flow boiling conditions as the mixture flows over the hot surfaces, which ...
Heat transfer mechanisms during flow boiling in microchannels
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2004-02)
The forces due to surface tension and momentum change during evaporation, in conjunction with the forces due to viscous shear and inertia, govern the two-phase flow patterns and the heat transfer characteristics during ...
A Model for correlating flow boiling heat transfer in augmented tubes and compact evaporators
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 1991-11)
A General correlation for saturated two-phase flow boiling heat transfer inside horizontal and vertical tubes
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 1990-02)
A simple correlation was developed earlier by Kandlikar (1983) for predicting saturated flow boiling heat transfer coefficients inside horizontal and vertical tubes. It was based on a model utilizing the contributions due ...
